We talked about this on tonight's Twins Hangouts... My picks were...

MVP - Kurt Suzuki (just ahead of Dozier)

Pitcher of the Year - I went with Hughes. Jeremy went with Glen Perkins. I commented that Fien has been better than Perkins this year... and that's not a knock on Perkins... Fien has been excellent!

I'd like to create an award for Eduardo Escobar. Something like the "Nick Punto award" for providing more value than anyone expected at the beginning of the year?

I hope the Twins can also have a player that gets the "Shannon Stewart award" for best midseason addition - say if Morales steps up. Or if the Twins get someone back for Correia/Willingham/Suzuki/etc. that has a great 2015. Fuld, I suppose, is a candidate right now if he can continue to hold off the regression gnome for another month or two.

Great picks. As good as Suzuki has been, the impact Dozier has on the offense is crazy. When he goes cold, the whole team can't score runs. When he gets hot, they put them up in bunches.

Love the idea of naming them after former Twins greats. I would choose Kaat over Santana though.
